A 10-day “Festival for the Mind”, the 17th Mind Sports Olympiad (MSO) opened in London on Friday 16 August, hosting a myriad of mind sport competitions, including the Creative Thinking World Championship, Hare and Tortoise, Chess – and variations on it, some novel such as Diving Chess – and last, but not least, go.
There will be a free introduction to go on the morning of Saturday, August 24, followed by the 13×13 competition that afternoon. The next day will see the all-day 19×19 go tournament, a 4-round McMahon, 40 minutes each main time + 30 moves in 5 minutes overtime.
Entry is £10 per event (single session) or £15 (double session) and it is being held at the University of London Union, Malet St, London, United Kingdom, WC1E 7HY. Click here for a full schedule of events.
